That would be Swag Offroad I believe. Lots of DIY stuff from them.

Front brakes hooked up and everything works. I will do the line lock if I have time. I need to reattach the lines to the frame now.

Found the left front caliper leaking today, I hope I got it sealed up now. I am scared to torque on the banjo bolt any more than I have.

The new U-joint to get the steering shaft in proper working order came, so I have parts to install.



It RUNS! Even on 3 year old skunky gas.

OK Apparently I have no clue what the shaft size of my Steering box is. 2nd U-joint came for the input shaft and it doesn't fit either. I thought it was a 3/4" 30 or 36 spline, but neither fits. Looks like I have to send yet another one back. They are both too small.

Adam stopped by and we got more stuff done...

New front shackles



One new rear shackle



The other... ugh.



We also got the new Lokar shifter in, and Adam fixed/modified my t-case shifter to be a LOT nicer.










Cleaned out 'the shed' as Adam has come to call it.

Well it made it to the new shop without being parted out or sold... maybe I can finish it now with more room. Just need motivation.

Yep, back to work. Much easier with a shop you can move in and find tools when you need them

New bushings in the frame and shackles





New steering shaft installed



Lock outs finally installed. Took forever because the stub shaft had to be removed because it was hitting a ball joint grease zerk making it off center. Glad to find out about it now.





To do:
Re-plumb transmission
Weld in floor board
Weld in patch under the jeep embossment
Rebuild rear driveshaft
Bolt up torque converter
Clean up what ever other messes we find (likely mostly electrical)
